barack obama, will be sworn in for the second term as the 43rd president of the united states. a ground breaking presidency to say the least but no president is as groundbreaking as george washington. when he became the first president, there was no precedent. every other president follow it is script by the man on the dollar bill. the history piece examines the evolving role of the presidency. joining us now, steve gillan. how are you? >> doing great. thanks for having me on. >> i'm fascinated how george washington shaped the presidency in to what we have now. talk a little bit about how george washington wrote the stript is that all other presidents follow. >> sure. i want to finish that story that your lead-in talked in about the title that washington would have and he wanted his excel len sy because he didn't want people touching him. instead of shaking the hand, they would bow so that's one of the reasons he liked it but washington really does -- you have to realize the presidency is an institution result of compromise and it's -- there are very few powers that are laid out in the
